it will be an issue between the vice president biden and romney's running mate, paul rea has been closed off for a thousand folks for a stop at bun's restaurant. they were in points near mount veteran on, both governor romney and governor chris christie. >> get the government get out of the way and you succeed. >>carl: you not likely to hear romney use words like "hell," but chris christie got it out in the first couple of seconds. romney will campaign in ohio today but the big event is the presidential debate tomorrow and more and more polls show romney has regained the lead. the momentum is here, and there is increasing anxiety among the democrats over worry that the president could be losing. with to new momentum, mitt romney is going back to the economy, pushing hard on jobs and the idea that the obama record ask not deserve re-election as he has been saying now since the convention, saying the country cannot afor another four more years of this. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron coming from delaware, ohio. >>shepard: this is on the east of the first and only scheduled vice presidential
. >> reporter: with president obama and mitt romney both in ohio today, the focus is likely to shift back to the economy. rob and paula, back to you. >> thanks a lot, karen. >>> this thursday, it's the candidates for vice president who will meet face to face, and our own martha raddatz will moderate that debate. abc, of course, will carry it live. it all kicks off at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. they say bind could be feeling the pressure. the president did so poorly. now pressure on joe's shoulders to come out there and kind of maybe put -- you know, spark a fire that the president could not. also interesting, came out yesterday from our pollster at "the washington post" is that the composition of the polls has changed a little bit. that can explain some of the shift in the numbers. both in the gallup and pew poll, self-identified democrats, that number was higher in the predebate polls. self-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. and that has maybe cha
in the debate with mitt romney, they're both willing to say and do anything to become president and vice president. and they're a little fast and loose with the facts. that's a lesson we've learned. we've been holding their feet to the fire over the last ten days. and we're going to continue to do that. the president included. >> the president says he was a little too polite last time. maybe he'll be less polite this time. here's another little exchange that the vice president had with paul ryan. i'm going to play some of these clips. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that's a $3,200 benefit cut -- >> more people -- >> these are from your own actuaries. >> more people signed up for medicare advantage after the change. >> it's a plan i put together with a prominent democratic senator from oregon -- >> there's not one democrat that endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan -- >> mr. vice president i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground, but i think we would be better serv
that both sides misrepresented the facts. mr. romney misrepresented the facts on his medicare plan and on the president's. let me say, yes, he has to be aggressive in defining who mitt romney is. he'll use his own words. mr. 47%. i think, i think, lay out his vision in contradistinction to romney's and do so in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut ou
part a home away from home for both the obama and the romney campaigns. they're spending a lot of time here, a lot of money here because of the role that ohio may ultimately play and who wins this election come november 6. last night mitt romney and paul ryan played to a large crowd in lancaster, ohio. there was a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of excitement in the air. and in large part because they believe the republicans believe they've won these first two debates. governor mitt romney had a pretty strong performance out in denver ten days ago. paul ryan had a pretty solid performance two nights ago down in kentucky. but that excitement and energy notwithstanding there's a lot of work left to be done for this ticket here in ohio. the president still shows a lead here in ohio, even though that lead has been chipped into over the last week or two, by about half in some of these polls. putting mitt romney within striking distance of the president. now, he may still, mitt romney may still have a challenge, a hurdle to clear with some undecided voters here. and that's surrounding this auto bai
, while romney need to convert 2008 obama voters. rob, paula, last night here in kentucky, both of them got a lot of help from their running mates. >> karen, can we say there was a winner? can we call it a draw? i was looking at several polls, three gave it to paul ryan. three gave the to joe biden. was there a winner? or was this a tie? >> yeah, paula those instant reactions were showing voters were evenly split. but i think if you have to pick who really got what they wanted to get out of this debate it was vice president biden. the democrats are very happy because he basically stopped the bleeding from last weak's, the president's performance at last week's debate. he did two things very well. one, he promoted the president's policies and defended the president's record and did it by connecting with voters. and, that's not something that president obama was able to do last week. he also cam out aggressively against the romney policies by going after paul ryan very strongly. that is also something we didn't see last week from president obama. but congressman ryan really held his own t
was saying before and what john has been talking about both here and elsewhere, which is how the romney plan reducing taxes, regulation, cutting spending, will result in a better america and a better life for the american people. >> yeah, dagen, if you were to go get an interview for a job in any business, you would not go in there and sit during the interview trashing the guy that had the job before you. you would try to sell your potential boss, here's what i bring to the table, what i would do, if you hire me to this job. that's the same thing when you're running for office. yet both these guys, maybe they never interviewed for a job, i don't know, but they just want to trash the other guy, and we had 90 minutes of mitt romney being mostly positive about what he would do. and he shot up in the polls as a result. he should make all his commercials that way and the next two debates the same thing. let obama a fester in his own problem. dagen: but is president obama in a tough situation about talking that way about himself in the next debate because of his record over the last -- >> that's a
in the presidential race. both candidates campaigned hard in the state yesterday. and mitt romney has more appearances there today. abc's karen travers is joining us this morning with more on this very close race. good morning, karen. >> reporter: good morning, rob. good morning, sunny. good luck trying to make sense of any polls over the last couple days. one thing is clear this race has gotten tighter. mitt romney was back in iowa for the first time in nearly a month. >> iowa is going to help elect me the next president of the united states. >> reporter: flying over his event this sign mocking him for the comments about big bird at last week's debate. the obama campaign is also trying to keep that in the news with this new ad. >> mitt romney taking on our enemies no matter where they nest. >> reporter: republicans say the president's campaign is showing signs of desperation. >> these are tough times. with real serious, use. so you have to scratch your head when the president spend the last week talking about saving big bird. >> election day, weeks away, getting a solid read on where the race stand i
, shows mitt romney bouncing up. he is now ahead 49% to 45% over the president. >>> although the race does remain very close. with both candidates returning to a state critical for victory in november. abc's karen travers is joining us now with more. hey, karen. >> reporter: good morning, rob. good morning, paula. a month out from election day, yesterday wasn't the typical day on the campaign trail. mitt romney was focused on foreign policy and the president was asking for cash not votes. shifting his focus to foreign affairs, mitt romney launched a scathing attack on president obama's policies and leadership overseas. >> it's time to change course in the middle east. it's clear the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> reporter: so far the economy has dominated the campaign debate. the romney campaign tried to seize on questions and criticisms about the president's handling of last month's attack in libya. it was also a chance to try to reverse the tide after some of romney's perceived missteps including initial response to the libya attack.
on the vice president to kind of move both of those lines of argument forward tonight. >> do you think we're going to hear from the vice president some of the things that the president did not mention, the 47% comment that mitt romney made, the role of bain capital, the issue of how much he pays in taxes? >> well, i think some of the things about romney himself. >> he has made arguments like that, repeatedly, dozen of times, it is central to his view of the debate about the role of government. he has repeatedly argued that once we get to a point where a majority of americans are receiving government benefits of one sort or another, they will vote themselves more benefits at the expense of those who are paying taxes. i mean, mitt romney has, as you know, and sean hannity renounce whatted he said about the 47%, but it is essential to paul ryan's view of the world, so it will be interesting to see what he says about it, and mitt romney's later comments about it. >> i want to you see this. again, our viewers were looking at air force two. we're waiting for the vice president to get out of the
watches, but really about a cluster, maybe six, eight states will make or break this race. romney made up a lot of ground since last week's debate for sure. >> i don't know if this one will move the needle. both appealed to their base really. joe biden didn't make any fatal flaws. and neither did paul ryan in this one. but, you know let everybody spin it how they want. i looked at six different polls. three gave it to biden. three gave it to paul ryan. >> it's a draw essentially. >> pretty much is a draw. >> again, i know the media's inclination, folk's inclination to pay attention to stylistic issues rather than substantive one -- the water drinking, laughing, grinning, we saw more of joe biden's teeth than his dentist last night. looking at the issues iran taxes, abortion medicare the role of faith, how they govern there are some sharp differences between the two men. i hope people paid attention to that other than the theatrics of the night. >> martha raddatz, our colleague here at abc, i think she did a fantastic job. really just keeping everybody in check. >> martha
was showing if something could happen he united states. i think they both met their bar what they were trying to do but it was very different than last week where there was a clear winner, mitt romney beat barack obama. that is not the case in this. melissa: i felt watching it last night sort of each side was nodding along and saying my guy did a great job, my guy won. it seemed very sort of even across the board. do you think that is a fair assessment? >> well i do. and i think that is the way most debates go. last week was a very rare instance. melissa, i will say this, at the same time, we're starting to see what obama's strategy is going to be next week. that is, don't let mitt romney get his rythym. that is what vice president was trying to do. and he did it very effectively. you're starting to see how they're adjusting to that defeat in the last week's debate. next week's debate should be very interesting. melissa: the vice-presidential debate doesn't really, it doesn't really do that much, right, unless, unless there's a knockout blow or unless somebody likes like they could not fulfil
? >> absolutely. everything matters from this point on. i expect both campaigns tonight to try to -- ryan continue to try to reach out to those women that romney pulled in and bind is going to go at women, i think trying to win them back. that's the group that's up for grabs right now because of the last performance of romney. tonight is going to count and it's going matter. everything from here on in. megyn: i want to talk to you about the demographics. karl rove had an extraordinary piece out talking about how the demographics are changing in key states. we'll do that next. stay with me. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.

said what if bashar al assad doesn't go away, but they both agree no boots on the ground in syria. >> looking back and not looking forward. paul ryan is talking about what potentially a romney/ryan ticket would have done differently if they had been in charge, identify rebel groups, identify freedom fighters, perhaps help those that the united states might want to push forward as far as the future leadership of syria is concerned a little bit earlier than the obama administration has. but as far as plans for what happens from this point on, no. and there is no appetite from the united states or quite frankly any country in the western world for boots on the ground in syria. as we heard from the vice president, joe biden, this is not libya. it is a much more complicated scenario. >> i want to get to the libya comparison in a minute. ryan claimed that the administration referred to assad as a reformer. a reformer. to your best -- >> no, this has been -- it has not. this has been fact checked by several sources including cnn. the word reformer was used by hillary clinton in march of
guests today. we both voted for obama, and if you are going to think this is a funny, but my decision came with the last debate, and the reason was the minutes that mitt romney said that he was not going to cut the 1%-ers, i read all the people, and there is one thing that i have taught my children, my grandchildren, is do not lie. that was a big lie. jerry, when we got together 12 years, he was a republican, i was an independent. each time we vote, we say, we might as well not vote because you are going to cancel my vote out. this is the first time we did not cancel each other's phone app. he came close to not being able to but because he gave up his license a year ago, and he needed to go down and get a florida i.d., and then all the sun, you got a passport. so he was able to vote. i listened to them all. there were some things i liked on both sides, but i decided not to change horses in the middle of the stream. host: the early voting quest was there a line? caller: i floated through the mail. my daughter is here in florida. she just came in on my 80th birthday. she met a man here.
